BONES! By Georgia Marsland 3/4M 2010. Bones help you move, like muscles. Bones support you and let you bend and sit. ABOUT BONES!. All Bones meet at the joints. The smallest bone in your body is called the ‘Stirrup’.
Have you ever felt that tingling feeling, when you have hit your elbow in just the right spot. It’s your funny bone. Named after that funny feeling after you hit it.
The funny bone isn’t actually a bone, it is a nerve that runs down your elbow, called The
‘ Ulnar Nerve’. It lets your brain know about feelings in your forth and fifth finger and also is in charge of some hand movements.
You get the funny felling when the Ulnar nerve is bumped against the humerus, the bone that starts at your elbow and goes all the way up to your shoulder.
Tapping your funny bone doesn’t damage the bone, but it sure feels strange.
